I have quite a few stories and we've had a long stroll the Mountain Buggy and I. Figured I'd just give an overall entry of our life first...
These are the passengers on my Mountain Buggy. We live on a farm in the panhandle of Florida, and I can honestly say I use my stroller more than any other piece of equipment out here, including our ATV and tractor. Every morning, I load my 10 month old boy on one side and 7 buckets of feed on the other and head out to feed the horses, goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, and dogs.
(Why do my two oldest daughters have their hands like that? They wanted their hand puppets to be in the picture also. Their puppets are named "Fred" and "Marty McFarty Pants").
Now, Mountain Buggy claims that this is just a two kid stroller, but it can easily accommodate three and, if they are strategically placed... four kids no problem. I have even had all five kids on it during one of my lazy days, but the fifth is more or less just balancing!I :-)
Now my 3yr old daughter Stella, is obsessed with collecting the eggs from our chickens. And when I say obsessed, I mean obsessed! First thing she does when she wakes up is tell me she has to go outside to get the eggs. I tell her she needs to let the chickens have some time, like I tell her every morning, to lay the eggs. Finally, late morning rolls around and she grabs her basket and heads outside.
I park the stroller on our patio at night. We have a Bantam chicken which comes and lays an egg in the seat of the stroller each morning. That's the first one she collects. Then she heads off to collect the rest of the eggs. She brings them back in the kitchen and sorts them all by color. We have brown eggs and also blue and green ones from Americaunas.
We did have a chicken who'd lay eggs in the basket underneath. She even went for a few walks with us before I realized she was down there! Luckily, I never tried to fold the stroller with her in it - that would have been ugly!
This stroller is so great, even the chickens think the seats are comfortable!
* While this shows off Mountain Buggy's durability, strength and tough performance, we don't recommend in any way over loading your stroller!
